Strengths:    It is strong with six and six it feels really light and is easy to pedal uphill. It is also very plush and it soaks up everything I throw at it.

Weaknesses:    have not found any yet

Bottom Line:   
This is an amazing bike for the price it is really smooth and easy to pedal uphill. This is my first freeride/dh rig so i do not know what it is like compared to other freeride/dh rigs. If you want to do heavy trailriding this bike is not for you but this bike is for the person who does everything.

Strengths:    Really really light, very plush. Amazing brakes {easy on the front}

Weaknesses:    the fork leaked in the first 2 months but that is not k2's fault, great fork anyway

Bottom Line:   
this is the best bike ever for some one who weighs as much as i do{110} and would also make a great bike for a heavier person too. It FEELS like 30 lbs. BUY FROM PEDAL N SPOKE. life time repairs. THIS IS THE BEST BIKE EVER. It is on sale now, get it while it is hot.

Date Reviewed: October 9, 2003

Strengths:    Stiff ride, excellent setup for freeriding, altough only six inch of travel max, bike is perfect for downhill, can be pedaled uphill can take pretty much anything you throw at it. Set up for DH with 6 inches of travel front and rear but still can be setup for easy x-country, 8 inch disc brakes, 2,5 inch tires, truvativ isis bb and race face prodigy crank with bash-guard, sherman breakout with 1.5 inch steerer and vanilla rc shock

Weaknesses:    rear derailleur close to chaine stays, hits and makes a big "clang" sound when going big, chain derailles easily when landing a drop or jumping.

Bottom Line:   
It lets you ride whatever you want and however you want, its the perfect bike for someone who wants a bike that can do it all without the limitations of a downhill rig. It can be pedalled uphill with a little more effort than xc rig but if climbing a bit to be able to go downhill isn't an option this is the bike for the job.

Strengths:    1.5,6" UP FRONT, SOLID FRAME, 4-5-6 REAR TRAVEL,NICE TIGHT COCKPIT

Weaknesses:    NOT YET AQUIRED

Bottom Line:   
I HAVE ONLY BEEN RIDING THIS YEAR,AND BASICALLY ONLY 2-3 TIMES EVERY TWO WEEKS. I BAUGHT A STINKY WITH A ZI DROP OFF
AND I LOVED IT COMING OFF A CCM.BUT DAMB IT THE CHAIN WAS ALWAYS COMING OFF AND I COULD NEVER GET A PROPER GEAR FOR DOWNHILL. I SEEN THE K2 WHILE I WAS ON A RIDE WITH ROD FROM LARRYS CYCLE AND I TRIED IT.MAN THIS THING WAS PLUSH. SO I TRADED MY KONA FOR THE K2. THIS HAS TIGHT TURNS AND GOING DOWN THE HILL IS JUST LIKE GOING DOWN A ROAD.FOR ALL THE FORTY POUNDS OR MORE THIS THING WAYS WITH THE INTENSE TIRES AND 8 IN ROTORS IN THE REAR. THIS THING CLIMBS EVEN I 6 IN TRAVEL MODE. I CLIMBED TO THE OUTHOUSE TRAIL WITHOUT GOING INTO MY SMALL RING GEAR IN FRONT AND BIG ONE IN BACK.SO I HAVE A BASH GAURD COMING TO REPLACE MY SMALL RING GEAR. THIS THNG KICKS A#?. 6 AND 6 IS NICE

I had my Garage (in Saskatoon) broken into last week and one of the items stolen was my prized k2 tirade 6.0. It's a pretty rare bike for Saskatchewan, let alone saskatoon (I would geuss it's the only one in Saskatoon), so it should be pretty easy to spot. There are some stickers on the upper fram ...
